Infertility: Follow-up Appointment

Experiencing our second miscarriage was difficult.  With our first one, we were shocked, but came to terms with the fact that this was just a fluke, bad luck if you will.  We told ourselves that it couldn’t possibly happen again, and then it happened again. I wanted answers, I wanted solutions.  We both did.  Another…

Infertility: The Results (IUI Treatment Three)

Warning: Miscarriage Mentioned… I woke up a bit earlier than usual at 10 days past IUI.  I was determined not to test early this time but something changed this morning.  I grabbed a test from beside my bed and ran to the bathroom where I took the test.  I was so hoping it would be…

Infertility: The Cost (IUI Treatment Three)

Note: These blog posts are a bit behind and this pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. The cost incurred during infertility treatments is massive.  The cost here is for one treatment, just one and this pales in comparison to the cost of IVF.  Keep in mind this is just 50% of the total cost as thankfully,…

Infertility: Insemination (IUI Treatment Three)

Note: These blog posts are a bit behind and this pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. I felt much more at ease this time despite everything we have on our plate right now.  I think it is because I have so much more on my mind that I don’t really have the time to worry about…

Infertility: Trigger Shot (IUI Treatment Three)

Note: These blog posts are a bit behind and this pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. I feel like this time around we were a little less nervous.  As we have done it once before we kind of new what to expect although with anything you don’t do regularly, it did require a little refresher. We…

Infertility: Monitoring Ultrasound (IUI Treatment Three)

I scheduled my ultrasound during my lunch time since that was the only time I could get away from work.  Jon and I decided that although we would love to have him there, that he didn’t need to come to this appointment, nothing too exciting was expected, so it wasn’t necessary for him to try…

Infertility: Baseline Ultrasound (IUI Treatment Three)

Our baseline ultrasound was scheduled for Friday. Luckily we had already taken the day off to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday so things worked out perfectly. We headed down to Downey and encountered no major issues, thankfully. LA traffic can be very unpredictable. After sitting in the office for about fifteen minutes watching all…

Infertility: Ready, Set, Wait… Go!

Life has been so hectic lately, in a good way, but still hectic.  I am certainly not complaining, but traversing through a new home build is quite the feat.  A lot of our free time is spent packing, driving to our new home to check the progress of things and getting our affairs in order…

Move: Jumping in Feet First

For many years we have been contemplating about moving to the Las Vegas area.  Literally every time we would go and visit Las Vegas we made it a point to visit the community we are now moving into.  We would tour the model homes of every builder and dream about what our lives would be…
